Library Journal Review

Armed with forewords by the likes of John Updike and Desmond Tutu, this splendid new series re-introduces the Bible through its pervasive cultural presence. Each volume includes an informative and well-written introduction to the meaning of scripture in the works of Handel, Joseph Conrad, and many others, followed by selections from the Authorized Version. While this approach may be too literary for some readers, the series ought to remind many of the joy and profit to be found in these ancient writings and of their immeasurable influence from their own day to ours. Highly recommended. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
